Nottingham Civic Exchange is a civic think-tank established by Nottingham Trent University to maximise research, policy and practical impact. NCE explores the implications of new initiatives from a Nottingham perspective, drawing on the expertise of University colleagues, the RSA and its regional Fellows, its civic and commercial partners, community and voluntary groups and NTU students.

At its launch on 15 June 2017, Matthew Taylor (CEO of the RSA), Dr Paula Black (Director of NCE) and Professor Edward Peck (Vice Chancellor of NTU) presented both the purpose of NCE and the early findings and next steps of its first research phase ‘Ordinary Working Families’.
